There are a few successful businessmen with no or very limited higher education... but they're quite few. You'll find more CEOs with PhDs than with high school diplomas.

CEOs are often hired into the position, so there may be some educational bias. What would be interesting by this discussion is how many of those CEOs were founders of the company?

CEO != entrepreneur

many entrepreneurs lack degrees.
